A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2003
Golden color with a thick heavy off white head. A lager with a english malts and hops. Lacks crispness of what a lager should be. An english ale with lager yeast.

Golden color with a creamy, thick head. Nice malt/hops taste. As far as lagers go I'd still take Yuengling over this

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Pale golden color with athick creamy head and good lace. Slightly sweet malty aroma with slight fruity accents and a hint of hops. Sweet malt flavor with a hint of hops but not much and a slightly hoppy finish, very good flavor for a lager.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Very nice aroma, I find, with a perfect mix of hops and malt. The flavor focuses on malt with some pleasant floweriness. ’Workmanlike’ comes to mind when describing this beer. Well brewed, but rather uneventful, and this is from a rater who actually likes Helles and pilsners. Someone would need to explain to me why this is a lot better than Heineken.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - DEC 12, 2002
Light aroma, with some faint malt and green hops. Clear golden color, with light effervescence and a decent head. Flavor is malty, lightly sweet and flowery, with some spicy bitterness finding it’s way into the flavor and palate about midpoint. Finish is lightly bitter and clean. Aftertaste is malty, and lightly sweet, but doesn’t last long. Not a bad one, don’t be too afraid to drink it before it really warms up.

Quite smooth and easy to drink. Strong outdoor smell - wet grass, the inside of a petting zoo. Crisp and clean. A sublte sweet maltiness.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2002
Smells grassy, deep amber, pours a large short lived head. Mild caramel flavour, nutty and roasted malts. Good bitterness, a bit light. Average.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2002
Light amber; grassy, mossy aroma; slightly tinny, cracker-like maltiness; ~24 IBUs hiding underneath earthy overtones. Today’s B.S. quote of the week "tightly fused flavours".

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2002
Golden colored. Malt and hop smell. Med. head. Light bodied. Crisp. bitter finish. not my favorite from Mr. Smith.

Perfectly clear golden, just the sort you would want to swim through on a warm summer day. The sweet malty aroma could be mistaken for wet feet. Flavours don’t really jump onto the tongue -> pretty bland, but with a bit of patience (Old Taddy deserves it) some fruity hops can be found and mild malts will linger on the palate.
